    Hello,

    I never tried any other PE until 5.0 came out, and am now wanting to try 4.2.

    Do I follow the same TI backup instructions etc as I would going from 4.2 to 5.0?

    Thanks

    You don't have to use TB at all. I didn't for either of them. Once all of your apps are restored via the market, do a batch restore to get your apps back to the way they are now. Might be a good idea to do a batch backup before flashing the new ROM. I've had to restart my angry birds 3 times now lol.

    Just flash as you would any other rom. I don't like to use titanium backup anymore, it just seems to cause issues. I just let Google restore my apps, it works much better that way (for me).

    yes. i believe the TI instructions are general instructions.

    basically, you're going to be installing a new rom, so treat it as such.

    Nope, Its a picture of a bumper sticker.

    It's the South Carolina state flag image,the palmetto tree and the moon. But instead of a tree, it has a keg of beer.
